General SharedAddIn.msi Runtime Errors

SharedAddIn.msi file errors often occur during the install phase of ChemDraw Ultra, but can also occur while the program is running. These types MSI errors are also known as “runtime errors” because they occur while ChemDraw Ultra is running. Here are some of the most common SharedAddIn.msi runtime errors:

Most MSI errors are due to missing or corrupt files. Your SharedAddIn.msi file could be missing due to accidental deletion, uninstalled as a shared file of another program (shared with ChemDraw Ultra), or deleted by a malware infection. Furthermore, SharedAddIn.msi file corruption could be caused from a power outage when loading ChemDraw Ultra, system crash while loading or saving SharedAddIn.msi, bad sectors on your storage media (usually your primary hard drive), or malware infection. Thus, it’s critical to make sure your anti-virus is kept up-to-date and scanning regularly.
